New Xerox Wide Format Printer Delivers Technical Documents with Precision and Speed in a Compact, Affordable Package

    TORONTO, Oct. 14 /CNW/ - Large and complex engineering and architectural
renderings, electrical diagrams and mechanical drawings require precise
detail. With that in mind, Xerox Canada today introduced the Xerox 6279(TM)
Wide Format Printer, a black-and-white digital printer, copier and scanner
which features sharp image quality, speed, a compact footprint and low running
    The system is flexible enough to fit in a variety of environments,
including commercial print shops and architectural, engineering and
construction companies. Its speed - printing seven or nine "D-size" (24" x
36") prints per minute - make it one of the most productive products in its
    "We know that image quality is the number one concern of wide-format
users with operating costs running a close second. The image quality and speed
of the Xerox 6279 meet those requirements," said Quincy Allen, president,
Xerox Production Systems Group. "The price is so affordable that users can
take advantage of the 6279 system where it best fits their needs, whether it's
in a construction manager's on-site trailer, a home office of an architectural
firm or on the production floor of a neighborhood print shop. It offers
reliability that they can count on."
    Cable Services Company, Inc., a design firm for the telecommunications
industry, is using the Xerox 6279 to produce CAD generated construction and
engineering drawings. The company chose the printer for its speed, image
quality, reliability and low maintenance. The scanning capability was also
important because Cable Services regularly scans hard copy documents to
electronic files or to print.
    The Xerox 6279 can simultaneously scan up to six images per second with
its optional on-board scanner while printing. The 600 x 600 dpi printing and
scanning capabilities deliver sharp, precise details even for complex plans,
schematics and renderings. The system holds up to four rolls of bond paper,
tracing paper or film for uninterrupted printing and media flexibility. The
optional on-board scanner or Wide Format Scan System allows reproduction of
worn originals to be improved by suppressing the background, which may be
damaged by wrinkles or water, and saving the important fine line details of
text and images.
    Users can select a wide range of configuration options including
printer-only or copier/printer models. The copier/printer offers
black-and-white scanning that is upgradeable to color. The scanner supports a
wide range of file formats and allows users to scan to a mailbox, to FTP or to
a remote printer. The 24-bit color TotalAccxes scanning option enables color
workflows and lets users scan to create a color file, or scan and print to a
networked color printer. These color and scanning options can be installed
on-site, so the system can grow with a user's business as additional
capabilities are needed.
    Xerox's portfolio of wide format technology will be highlighted at Graph
Expo, the printing industry's largest annual exhibition in North America, Oct.
26-29 in Chicago.
